Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Both strut towers on my 1998 Caravan have rusted out to the point of failure. Speaking to many Caravan owners and going to many sites this problem seems to be very common on these vehicles. Why does Chrysler not have to be responsible to all these vehicle owners or the ones that might be involved in a collision due to this built in defect?
